    Default Lanc JB235/C 49 Sqn 18/19 Nov 43 op

    Piloted by Plt Off Reg Hales, JB235/C returned from a raid on Berlin on the night of 18/19 Nov 43 with rear gunner Wt Off Hugh Fraser dead as the result of oxygen failure.

    If there should be a forumite holding a copy of the 49 Sqn ORB for this night's raid could they check and tell me, please, the names of the other crew members?

    I have already checked John Ward's 'Beware of the Dogs of War', incidentally, but only the above two names are mentioned therein.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.
